Geometric Mean

Category : JEE Main & Advanced

If \[a,G,b\] are in G.P., then G is called G.M. between \[a\] and \[b\].


(1) If \[a,\,{{G}_{1}},\,{{G}_{2}},\,{{G}_{3}},....\,{{G}_{n}},\,b\] are in G.P. then \[{{G}_{1}},\,{{G}_{2}},\,{{G}_{3}},....\,{{G}_{n}}\] are called n G.M.’s between \[a\] and \[b\].


(2) Insertion of geometric means : (i) Single G.M. between a and b : If a and b are two real numbers then single G.M. between \[a\] and \[b\]\[=\sqrt{ab}\].


(ii) n G.M.’s between a and b : If \[{{G}_{1}},\,{{G}_{2}},\,{{G}_{3}},\,......,\,{{G}_{n}}\] are n G.M.’s between a and b, then


\[{{G}_{1}}=ar=a{{\left( \frac{b}{a} \right)}^{\frac{1}{n+1}}}\], \[{{G}_{2}}=a{{r}^{2}}=a{{\left( \frac{b}{a} \right)}^{\frac{2}{n+1}}}\],


\[{{G}_{3}}=a{{r}^{3}}=a{{\left( \frac{b}{a} \right)}^{\frac{3}{n+1}}}\], ……………….., \[{{G}_{n}}=a{{r}^{n}}=a{{\left( \frac{b}{a} \right)}^{\frac{n}{n+1}}}\].
